Our Humanities curriculum aims to inspire children to become more confident, creative, and independent learners who engage in real life experiences both inside and outside of school through carefully planned educational visits, visitors, experiments, and exploration to enhance their learning. The Humanities’ curriculum allows pupils to acquire fundamental knowledge of significant historical events, places, and people, including those who have contributed to national and international achievements. We equip children with the key geographical skills to understand and help make the world a better place. We aim for children to understand the past and develop a sense of chronology. Children will gain a sound knowledge and understanding about a range of eras. We promote an interest and curiosity about the world before them, and how the past impacts on the world today. We give opportunities for the children to engage using different learning styles, in practical and classroom-based activities.

Through our unique programme of stunning starts and fabulous finishes, Class Teachers plan exciting, progressive, enquiry-led lessons. Planning refers both to the National Curriculum and other progression documents including TT Education Skills. Each unit has built in practice, retrieval, and reinforcement of key concepts to ensure knowledge sticks in the long-term memory. We recognise the importance for children to gain ‘real-life’ experiences through hands-on, practical activities, and we ensure this happens through fieldwork and educational visits.
